    kb/2762895 This update practically hosed my desktop. I did system restore and that prompted a Windows system repair twice as Windows wouldn't boot.
    I found references to several programs that were affected, Secunia PSI being one, it was telling me I had to update 7 versions of Microsoft Visual C++. I uninstalled Secunia using Revo Uninstaller and that helped, but Windows Explorer kept closing, every time I rebooted, that update kept trying to install again. I finally managed to get to Windows update and uninstalled it and now things appear to be back to normal. That update is now blocked. I reinstalled Secunia, which now shows everything OK.

    @mabagwell - Are you running Win 7 (32 bit) SP1? Just wondering, as that is what I'm running and your message gives me pause about installing that update.

    I installed it on Nov 28th with no problem then, or since. Running Win7 [64 bit] SP1. I no longer run Secunia PSI as IT was causing me problems.

    I'm running Win7 SP1 (32 bit), Secunia PSI (2.0 not 3.0) and had no issues installing kb2762895. If it makes a difference, I installed it by itself not with other Windows updates (not by deliberate choice, just had no others needing installation at the time).
